Welcome to the land where ancient castles guard misty lochs and wild deer roam heather-flecked hillsides. 

Glenfinnan, Scottish Highlands


  • If you want to experience the Scotland of your dreams, it’s definitely here. Travel from the buzzing cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow to the off-the-beaten-track beauty of the Highlands and islands, untouched by time.
  • You can stretch your legs hiking majestic mountainscapes, or wander pristine beaches where your footprints will be the only ones in the sand. So look beyond the bagpipes and you’ll uncover a dynamic country where you’re as likely to find experimental music and theatre as you are tweed and tartan.
  • Base yourself in Inverness and explore the Loch Ness region - come for the monster-hunting, stay for hiking, scenic drives and even dolphin-spotting.
